I would like to thank the New York City Law Review for requesting my contribution to this issue. This piece draws on previous work with Sarah Zaidi and Alicia Ely Yamin. See Jean Connolly Carmalt, Sarah Zaidi, & Alicia Ely Yamin, Entrenched Inequity: Health Care in the United States of America in The Right to Health in Comparative Perspective (Stephen P. Marks, ed.) (forthcoming). Many thanks go to Alicia Ely Yamin for her comments regarding the ICESCR signature obligation. Special thanks are also due to Maxwell Carmalt for his patience, and to Daniel Connolly Carmalt, without whose support and substantive feedback this article could not have been completed.
